Stargazing

The Week That Was: A stinky role for Patrick Stewart and a surprisingly good ‘Split’

SUNDAY

Hmmm. Musical guest Sturgill Simpson sets the “Saturday Night Live” stage on fire (figuratively) right around midnight. But did he have to end the show by smashing (literally) that sweet “Star Wars” guitar?

MONDAY

Huzzah! From every mountainside, let freedom ring.

TUESDAY

Huzzah! Happy 95th birthday, Betty White!

WEDNESDAY

Huzzah! NBC announces it is resuscitating “Will & Grace” for a 10-episode run in the 2017-18 season. Because Megan Mullally’s Karen Walker is the hero America deserves.

THURSDAY

Hmmm A new trailer for Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine sequel “Logan” makes us start to believe in co-star Patrick Stewart again a day after it was announced that Stewart will voice the poop emoji in “The Emoji Movie.” Oh, the ignominy.

FRIDAY

Huzzah! Director M. Night Shyamalan returns with the multiple personality thriller “Split,” starring James McAvoy. Here’s the twist: It’s good.
